The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor dazzled at the Detroit Auto Show in January. Its Turbo V-6 engine, new terrain management system and suspension are well worth the awe.
Turbo V-6 Engine
The 2016 Ford Raptor’s 3.5 liter V6 EcoBoost engine was well received, but the 2017’s 3.5 liter Turbo V-6 already has skeptical aficionados excited for its release. The Turbo emits 375 hp, as well as 470 lb.-ft. of torque (turning power). Simply put, the Turbo V-6 engine by far out-powers many of its competitor’s V-8 truck engines.
New terrain management system
The new 2017 Raptor’s terrain management system consists of six unique preset modes: Normal, Street, Weather, Mud and Sand, Baja and Rock Crawling. The engine, transmission, traction control and brake systems all adapt to the terrain even when its covered in rain, snow or ice. The Raptor’s off-road capabilities are ideal for high-speed desert running.
FOX Racing Shox equips the 2017 Ford F150 Raptor for road, dirt, snow and mountain, with race-proven performance.
The 2017 Raptor’s aluminum alloy body makes the Raptor approximately 500 pounds lighter than its previous model. The sporty exterior is complemented by its sleek interior with carbon-fiber accents, a contoured steering wheel, and touch screen multimedia system. The 2017 Ford F150 Raptor is also available in a SuperCrew model.
